Dear Readers,

This month’s Flute Examiner has interviews, articles and a gift from a generous composer. I am so excited to release my interview with Catherine Ramirez, a flutist whose interests seem designed to enhance the relationship between her humanity and her music—a topic that should interest us all. Katherine Lewis shares her third column with us, this one an interview with Katherine Isbell Emeneth, who has embraced her role as an administrator in a portfolio career and is showing the rest of us a new path toward success.

Elsa Nilsson recounts her journey toward a strong rhythmic connection to music, and finally, composer Scott Watson shares his arrangement of “The Holly and the Ivy.” This arrangement ran in Flute Talk in the 90’s, and who among us didn’t love those monthly gifts? I remember this particular arrangement fondly and am so happy to provide Scott with a platform for sharing it with you. Happy Holidays from the Flute Examiner team!

—Jessica Dunnavant, Editor, The Flute Examiner
